In a child’s life there are three types of death. The most important is that of a beloved animal. The most financially relevant is that of a relative they never really liked, but left them a boat load of money. The last type of death is the slightly painful loss of a relative or friend that they really cherished and will cause them to be completely devastated. When breaking the news that their beloved animal/friend/family member has passed it is important to not be too sensitive about the issue, tell them in an upbeat tone, “Hey did you hear so and so died! That’s crazy, right!” If they start to cry tell them “Don’t worry they didn’t like you anyway”.
